Tri-City Herald Photographer Wins Washington State Photo of the Year
How cool is this!? The Associated Press named a photographer from the Tri-City Herald the winner of best photo of the state for 2015! In August, Andrew Jansen (who now works for the Springfield News-Leader in Missouri) snapped a photo of , the mother of Anthony Zambrano-Montes, at the funeral for her son. Zambrano-Montes (as you may recall) was shot and killed by police after an incident where he threw rocks at officers. The second photo chosen was of a huge light saber battle in Seattle that was staged for the opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. To check out these amazing photos, click here! Congrats, Tri-City Herald!
